Personally, I don’t agree with life bans for anything or anyone, least not for first offences.
Generally agree that lifetime bans are quite draconian, particularly for first time offenders.
Only place I would like to see them is for performance enhancing drug violations in combat sports. I think if you put yourself in a position where you are fighting professionally and you cheat to gain an advantage where you could potentially kill the other person you don’t get a second chance.
That said I don’t think a 6 match ban sends a strong enough message. It’s often tricky as it’s usually a difficult thing to prove. Most cases it’s one mans word against another but when it is proven or admitted 6 matches is insufficient.
